Support Your Child’s
Reading and Writing Skills.

Literacy is a fundamental life skill starting from your child’s early years until adulthood. Building a strong literacy foundation will help them be more confident with reading and writing, even before they step into the classroom.

With speech therapy focused on literacy intervention, we’ll help them practice good literacy skills and improve their overall ability to read, write, and speak. Getting in touch with a speech-language pathologist early can also help avoid further challenges like dyslexia and other literacy disorders.

How Will Speech Therapy Help with My Child’s Literacy?

Literacy building and goals may focus on reading and writing, but it also works alongside the development of speech and language learning. A more complete approach to literacy covers your child’s ability to:


understand and absorb information when they read or hear sentences


familiarize with words formed through the combined sounds they hear
(Phonemic Awareness)


relate written letters and letter combinations to their corresponding sounds


memorize words and use them with the right context


use their full listening and speaking skills to communicate easily

Good reading practice and habits can support speech and language development on the long-term. Starting early is key to reaching literacy goals, and you can get started as soon as today when you get in touch with our speech-language pathologists.
